j - The Beach Boys's Good Vibrations (1966)
46 years later, I still can't get enough of this sound

Tribute to Carl, the lead singer of Good Vibrations. And to Brian of course. And to each of the other Beach Boys: I love you all. You are my California. My California Dream.

It took them 6 months to record this masterpiece: A reminder of the virtues of patience.


LYRICS: GOOD VIBRATIONS
Written by Brian Wilson and Mike Love

I, I love the colorful clothes she wears
And the way the sunlight plays upon her hair
I hear the sound of a gentle word
On the wind that lifts her perfume through the air

Shes somehow closer now
Softly smile, I know she must be kind
When I look in her eyes
She goes with me to a blossom world
